Deborah Mutch talk - 'What I mean, my dear': The Woman Worker and the male voice

Event location: Working Class Movement Library

Date: 10th May 2017

Event time: 14:00 to 15:00

The Woman Worker began on 1 September 1907 when it was published by the National Federation of Women Workers and edited by Mary R. Macarthur.  Although intended by its founder, Robert Blatchford, as the first workers'/socialist publication specifically for women, from the very first issue there was clearly going to be a tussle to have the female voice heard.  This talk will discuss the amount of space given over to the male voice in this female publication, and the tone of conversation between the genders across the pages.

This talk is part of the Invisible Histories series - all welcome, admission free, light refreshments afterwards.
